Apna Ghar Shelter Home for Homeless & Destitute

There is no specific system for helpless people in India like this, under which we felt the need to do some work for their rehabilitation and recognizing the Community Accountability. Therefore, we have established an ashram in Bhopal. This Ashram is made of 50 beds, which will be given further expansion, so that more people can be supported through this initiative. In this Ashram, we are providing shelter to mentally retarded, handicapped who lost their homes.

Empowerment and Environment
Supporting the Global Parli Movement
HEG in collaboration with Global Vikas Trust is running a movement called ‘Global Parli’ to transform India through Rural Development. The approach is to encourage farmers to switch from traditional crops to remunerative fruit crops for an increase in their income levels by at least 25 times and also to support environmental concerns. A movement built on modern agriculture, latest technologies & supply chain systems. It is fuelled by some of India’s top experts, trainers, agronomists, successful farmers, agro-industries, and academics.
The process followed by Global Parli is procuring farmer registration, providing pre-plantation training, distribution of saplings, regular farm visits of team and plantation trainings. The training that we provide is the essence of the model and is achieved through the help of local Agri Universities, Krishi Vigyan Kendras, agro-industry experts, domain agronomists. HEG Limited is proud to be a partner of this life changing movement.
